- Grave RegistrationThe goal of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) National Grave Registration Project is to locate the final resting places of all Union Civil War Veterans, and enter that information into the National Graves Registration Database. This undertaking is rather large and needs as many interested people to assist as possible.As with any project such as this, considerable fieldwork will be needed to obtain the information that will eventually be placed into the National database. Individuals who wish to assist the SUVCW may obtain a Grave Registration packet (consisting of a set of instructions, list of abbreviations and a Graves Registration form) by clicking the link. Each completed form will represent one Union soldier’s grave. Upon completion of the form, it can then be mailed to the National Grave Registration Officer for inclusion in the National database or by submission to the FDC#62 Graves Registration Officer.
